▌小閃的主婦人生 ▌新家 !!! 新家 !!!!!! ♥(中英文正式上線!)♥

是說。。。主婦人生的今天的主題是。。。我們找到房子了!!
大開心壓!在看過大概四個房子以後我們就找到了!很幸運低!而且是在我們最喜歡的區域"Noe Valley",然後在舊金山所謂的MUNI METRO旁邊,所以對於樂高,開車去上班很方便,對於常常會忍不住想要飛奔到市中心走走逛逛的購物狂來講,超適合的!!!!

Hello! I am pleased to announce that "WE GOT THE APARTMENT!"
After viewing only four houses, we found exactly we wanted. It is located in our favorite district "Noe Valley" and just a few minutes away from public transport: the "MUNI METRO". This is perfect for Lego to drive to work, and for me - aka the SHOPAHOLIC - to get access to shopping in the heart of San Francisco.

其實原本覺得租房子很容易的,畢竟以我這樣樂天的個性,每次都覺得事情總是會解決的呀!沒有想到舊金山連租房子的可以這麼競爭!!!以以往在英國租房子的經驗,都是很隨性的與仲介約看房子的時間,去走走看看,回家想想,然後一個星期後再決定。舊金山可不是哩!房東都很跩,像我們的房子就說4:00~4:15看房子時間,連我們早到,都不讓我們進去。接著一進去,就馬上給兩張"申請書",我們想租的話,就寫申請表,寫好以後,仲介收集給房東,房東選他喜歡的幾個,然後再做背景調查,最後再面試。(是說,也太誇張了吧!!連工作都好像沒這麼緊張。)

In the beginning, I thought it would be easy to find a place, at least for a personality like mine where I always believe everything will work out. I can't believe how competitive the rental market is in San Francisco. My previous experience in the UK was quite casual - you book time with the estate agent, see the house, think about it and decide a week later. San Francisco is not so chilled! First, the landlords have got attitude. For example, one landlord said the open house was between 4:00~4:15, and when we turned up five minutes early he did not let us in. As soon as we entered the apartment, we received 2 application forms and told that if we wanted the place, we had to fill them out. After going through all the application forms, the landlord picks a few people he would like to rent to, gives them an interview, and checks credit ratings and resumes. Can you believe it?! Completely over the top, and much more stressful than doing a job interview!

總之,就是這樣呀!在我們這個只有15分鐘的看房子時間,我們在舊金山找到了我們的新家,斜對角是超美的雙塔教堂,巷口有小小的肉販店,街角有個獨特的水果店,還有咖啡廳。大概18世紀建造的維多利亞的房子,一房兩廳木製地板,感覺可以佈置的很溫馨很溫馨,也有好大的餐廳區塊,可以放好大的桌子來當工作室!期待買家具還有裝潢壓!!♥

Anyway, that's it! In the limited 15 minutes viewing the property, we found our home in San Francisco. There is a beautiful twin-tower Catholic church just around the corner, a butchers, a fruit shop and a lovely coffee shop at the end of our street. The house is Victorian, built in the 18th Century, with one bed room and wooden floors. I cannot wait to decorate, enjoy the big dining area and to finally have proper table for us to work on. ♥

裝潢好再來給大家分享壓!!!!啾

I will share everything when it is settled!! Muah xx

Thanks so much for reading. xx

話說,之前想要發中英文的想法終於出來了!!希望大家喜歡壓~
不過這還是要花很多時間,所以沒有每篇都會寫中英文囉!(畢竟我也是很怕誤人子弟 需要檢查超久的 呵呵呵!)
希望未來能真的每一篇都有中英文阿!乎!
